in benghazi. panetta testified. then it was we want to hear from secretary clinton. senator clinton did testify. then it was a request put out to the white house tuesday asking for specific information about where the president was and was doing on september 11, 2012 after the raid in benghazi. now, the white house pointed out that all this information is public record, that as this was happening in realtime, we were learning about secretary clinton at the secretary's request was speaking to labor yes. the following day the president himself called the president of libya. senators were still insisting that the white house put to them in writing this very same question. they got that this morning. they said their concerns are satisfied. as we know, there are other senators looking for more information. cenk: one last thing here. look, you know first of all hagel has nothing to do with benghazi. he wasn't in the government. it's abstored begin with on that note. again, i look for what's their real motivation, now, one thing which is what they say then there's a second thing, what they're
senators, what you hear is please follow the hillary clinton model this notion she came in and had star power and laid low and didn't do very much, same thing for barack obama in the u.s. senate. so the expectation, if not the mandate for liberal senators is follow this employed he will that says sit down and shut up. the encouraging thing about elizabeth warren is she is saying i'm going to play rules is i am here as a senator. i campaigned on these things. shies effectively say i go made promises to voters about what i would stand up for and the serious thing to do is to stand up for those things and fulfill those pledges when i'm in office. cenk: i think part of what that executive is saying is hales know your role. your roam as a democratic is to pretend to be progressive during the elections but once the election is over, your role is to work for us, the financial executives. secondly, the democrats are paid to shut up and the republicans paid to run wild. that's how we get the imbalance policy that we winds up getting not political results in terms of who wins, but policy results.
that affect walmart i would say no. >> cenk: hillary clinton was on walmart's board of directors for six years, too. do you think she should not have been secretary of state? >> i think there is a whole range of issues that one should consider in terms of clinton's record, but i think it was appropriate that her connection and others' connections to walmart became an issue in the primary. we saw in 2008 prominent democratic party officials speaking out about walmart. we have not seen in recent months since the strikes that took place on black friday or before very many democrats and certainly nobody at the top of the party speaking up about these strikes or speaking up about this challenge to the dominant employer in the united states at the moment. i think the fact that hillary clinton served in a role where she helped to improve walmart's image. she helped walmart get over its imagine as a white-male company is something that she should have been asked to answer for much more. at the time she suggested changes, but she didn't speak up about labor issues in walmart, and something she should h
whew, disastrous, not only did clinton clean his clock but so did george w. bush and ronald reagan. he preserved less land for public use than george w. bush. of course, obama likes to break bush's record and go further right, and he did in this case as well and opened up a tremendous amount of land to drill on. i want to bring in a couple of experts, michael shure our political correspondent, and then mark flogl with greenpeace research unit. thank you for joining us. i want to ask you about sally jewel's record. it seems to me that it's a mixed bag. she worked for an oil company and then worked as as a banker, which is a prerequisite if you work in the obama administration. she seems like a conservation conservationist. >> she worked for mobile 30 years ago. that was an entry level position. the people she'll deal with in her new position if she's confirmed is a much different kettle of fish. she'll come under pressure to open up public land for oil coal all the fossil fuel industries. >> cenk: do we have an indication of how she's going to react to that? are you in favor or oppose t
the brennamans, the clappers, the hillary clinton's you can't get through the bob gates and leon panettas and penetrate that bubble and say do you understand what you're doing both to american civil liberties and rest of the world's appreciation with america with these increased drone strikes that seem to have an endless visit at a for future. >> that brings up a bunch of questions. first, do you think president obama is in that bubble that colonel wilkerson is talking about? >> it seems to be. i can tell you, i was extraordinary disappointed. i campaigned for president obama and voted for him again this time, because he was the lesser of the two evils it seemed. with president bush, you could look at him and say he doesn't know any better. president obama knows better, but despite his losty rhetoric about restoring america's reputation and upholding the rule of law there's been little effort in that reward. >> john brennan was aware of the c.i.a. program. president obama wanted him to oh be head right away. he loved this had guy from the get go. but every time brennan was asked, oh, my g
